National Research Council's Role "The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy's purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities.
Hands-on science experiments at home or in the classroom are a fun way to engage kids and get them excited about science. Today's sites house hundreds of easy experiments that can be done with supplies that you probably have around the house, or can get at the grocery store. Exploratorium: Science Explorer 5 stars "Get messy, get airborne, get loud, get shocked!" San Francisco's Exploratorium hands-on science museum offers a sampler of thirty simple experiments excerpted from two "Science Explorer" books. Elsewhere they provide a hundred more experiments called " snacks " because they are both fun and easy.
